Born and raised in eastern Bhutan, Acharya Tashi Wangchuk moved to Rumtek Monastery in Sikkim, India, at the age of 15. While there, he studied for ten years and graduated from Karma Shri Nalanda Institute, the principal Karma Kagyu monastic college. After his graduation, Acharya Tashi assumed teaching responsibilities for the Karma Kagyu lineage in Hong Kong before returning to Rumtek Monastery to teach at the college from which he graduated.

Following this, Acharya Tashi did editorial work for Nitartha International in Nepal, an educational organization founded by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche to preserve and digitize endangered Tibetan texts. Acharya Tashi is one of the principal editors working to publish the renowned Eight Great Treatises of the Karma Kagyu lineage. Acharya Tashi Wangchuk is the resident teacher at Nalanda West.
